More than 1,300 delegates are heading to Adelaide for the Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference & Trade Exhibition from 24 to 28 July.
It’s one of the world’s biggest gatherings of winemakers – and slap-bang in the middle of the Trade Show will be Lallemand and Winequip.
The stand number is 1249. You won’t miss it: it will be the biggest one there!
Lallemand Australia managing director Jason Amos and colleagues will be out in force to talk all things wine fermentation and industry gossip (and maybe even Jason’s obsession with cycling all over South Australia and selfies!).
Why the big presence at the show? Lallemand and Winequip have entered into a new distribution agreement for both the Lallemand and IOC portfolios, providing regional distribution centres, applied fermentation and dedicated winemaking support.
Winequip is now the sole distributor for Lallemand biological products in Western Australia, NSW, the ACT, Queensland, Victoria and Tasmania. So every state, except South Australia.
Lallemand Australia will provide dedicated applied fermentation and ambassador support to Winequip and will continue to service South Australian winemakers directly.
“Winequip’s business model fits very well with the way Lallemand Australia has always approached its customers,” says Jason Amos, managing director of Lallemand Australia.
“We are really excited to have the knowledge and strength of these two businesses working together.”
Lallemand is a privately-owned company and is still the only major supplier of wine yeast or bacteria that is a primary producer of both. The company owes its success to its constant pursuit of excellence, flexibility, ongoing investments in research and development and relevant applied fermentation winemaker support.
Two of Lallemand’s 39 researchers – yeast researcher Dr Jessica Noble and Dr Sibylle Krieger-Weber (director of bacteria R&D) – will be available at the Lallemand-Winequip stand for in-depth discussions on R&D and application of the Lallemand portfolio to ‘real world’ winemaking objectives.
Of course, we can’t go without showing you one of Jason’s selfies.
